  3. Alfa Giulia
    Hello all! Yesterday, 2 weeks after having my Giulia serviced the 'Oil above maximum' warning came on and remains on. Car booked in at dealer for them to take a look. Anybody else had this? I know too much oil is not a good situation, but why did it take the car 2 weeks (~250 miles) to decide...
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    After reading different posts on here, it’s got me thinking if there is a “Fuel” additive that does actually work? So in my quest over the last couple of days, I think this has the best chance of success. Archoil AR6400-D MAX Pro Diesel Engine, Turbo, DPF Cleaner Concentrate 430ml Followed by...

  6. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I've had my G for a couple of months now but I've been busy and hadn't got round to checking the tyre pressures yet. Anyway just went to the petrol garage that I always use to check then and to my horror my front nearside tyre was at 67 psi. I'm running 18" 5 spokes by the way. I was just...

    Hi I have an odd ticking / knocking sound at max lock. (only when turning right, and going forwards) Does anyone know what it could be ? I tried to jack the car up, and move the wheel by hand, but could not find anything that would interfere with the wheel... I might try to jack the car up...

  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I have an odd one. When I turn at max lock, the car feels like its toppling over itself. Its hard to explain, it feels like it isent quite making the turn, or is "skipping" over it I have checked the differential (both wheels pull) so I don't think it is it, but now I don't know what it...
  13. Tuning & Upgrades
    I understand that at least with Porsche you can get a report from the Ecu listing how many times, how long and when the engine was over revved. So I conclude that the ecu is saving data. My question is.. could it be that the my Alfa Romeo Giuleta's Ecu is saving max speed? Could that be used...

    As if anymore proof of the W123's rugged longevity was required, it exists fictionally in Mad Max 4. No idea what role it plays, but that it still survives in such a dark, dystopian world, is oddly reassuring, should we ever get into such a mess that results in the world Mad Max lives in. :lol...
